phenylephrine false positive drug test

Can phenylephrine show a false positive for phentermine? ## I just got bacl from my p.o. And I put clean urine in a nasal spray bottle because I thought it would be easy to get away with... Well I ended up failing for suboxone so I don't recommend anyone doing that. Just a warning... ## I took Sudafed PE the day before I had my monthly drug test and it didn't show up as a false positive for anything. They do say that the phenylephrine may cause a false positive for methamphetamine but it didn't on me. I asked the nurse about this when I went in and she told me if you buy the Sudafed that's behind the counter that you have to sign for that. It will show up as methamphetamine because it's what people use to make methamphetamine. Hope that helps you out.

round white pill weird pe symbol on it

What is this small round white pill scored on one side .Other side has what looks to be a P inside a circle with an e outside of it ? ## Hi Tom, Just wondering out of curiosity where you found this pill at, because I'm not locating any matches to it online given the details provided? I know on some over-the-counter medications the PE reportedly stands for Phenylephrine, so that may be something to take into consideration upon further investigation. Some labs will also do an analysis on the contents of the tablet for a moderate fee, if all else fails. I hope this helps! ## I also have some of these pills...I was told they were oxy 5mg however they do the opposite to my mind and body! Any one know what these small white pills are with what appears to be a P in the middle of several ci...

If is expired in 2014 is it still okay to use? is it effective for decongestion still? ## Hello, Rach! How are you?

expiration date phenylephrine

I've got 5 bottles of Phenylephrine Hydrochloride Opthalmic Solution 2.5% 15ml that expired June 2014. Can these still be used on patients for the time being? ## Hi Lezlee, Even with the best intentions in mind, I would never encourage the use of expired medication on other patients, due to liability and because the idea of that just seems very unethical despite the possibility of it still retaining efficacy; which I would think it probably has to a large extent. According to an article by Harvard Medical School, many expired meds actually remain good for 15 years beyond the listed expiration date. However because we don't have a specific list stating what these meds are, the best option in my opinion is to continue adhering to the date listed on the label to ensure patient safe...

childrens benadryl allergy and sinus

Our Ped told us we could give our 11 month old (22lbs) 1tsp of Childrens Benadryl to help with her runny nose and cough. I grabbed the Allergy and Sinus one not thinking and now I'm wondering if that's still okay to give to her? ## @Rheiannon, According to the manufacturer, Children's Benadryl should not be given to children under 1 year of age for treating allergies. Reason they say this though is because it causes most babies to be too sleepy. Also for a child weighing 20-24 lbs they recommend 3/4 of a tsp. Personally I don't see a quarter of a tsp having THAT much more of an effect overall on the tiredness of the baby. But then again, everyone responds differently to these meds. However I wouldn't be overly concerned about giving this to your child since yours see...

bioflu side effect

I have allergic rhinitis and headache I took bioflu ...then my clogged nose are gone but the next day i have severe headache and dizziness and I feel I want to blow. .then I took alaxan and took a nap and my headache is gone ## Hello, Katya! How are you feeling? All medications carry the risk of possibly causing side effects, even BioFlu, especially with the Phenylephrine in it, it is known to cause nausea, dizziness, headache and insomnia. But there is also a chance that your sinus issue caused the headache, since that can also cause them. But both BioFlu and Alaxan contain Paracetamol, so please be careful doubling up as taking too much of it could be dangerous. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. Are there any other questions or concerns?
